How Do I Play This Section of Jimbo's Lullaby (Piano)? Novice (Self Studying) Music Theory and Piano
In the segment of the piece shown below (measures 9–13), which notes and dyads do I play on which beat(s)? Specifically, measure 9.
I've been trying to use the below video to figure it out. 32 seconds in on this video, the pianist plays Bar 9 of this piece. I am very confused as to the ties and slurs in Bar 9 and what he is actually playing. The time signature is 2/2 (think there is a typo in the key signature). For the measures shown and the video, it appears the pianist is playing G5, F4-G4, F4-G4, F4-G4, Eb4, F4-G4, Db4, Eb4, F4-G4, Eb4. I counted the number of F4-G4's in the video so I know how many he is playing, but I am not sure which notes correspond to which of the F4-G4 dyads (in the red box in the attached pic).
(Secondarily, when I attempt to add up the note values for the first bar (9) I am confused as to how you can have a "whole note" plus all the other notes within the bar, and all their values add up correctly.)
The video I'm using as a reference is:
2/2is a standard and common time signature, it indicates that the pulse is based on a "minim" (half note, 1/2) and there are two beats of that pulse for each bar; 2. what you indicate are two different voices: E♭ and D♭ belong to another voice which is not the same as that used by F and G. The fact that they are on the same stave isn't relevant: you can have a whole note on the bottom stave and still have 8 quavers on the bottom.
